Link:   Hilton HHonors™ Card from American Express.

Until November 30, 2016, you’ll earn the highest sign-up bonuses ever with the Hilton HHonors™ Surpass® Card from American Express and Hilton HHonors™ Card from American Express.

I’ve had a different link for the Hilton HHonors™ Surpass® Card from American Express on our Hot Deals page with the same offer, but now it’s been extended.  Remember to check Hot Deals for all the latest offers!

Hilton hotels include Conrad, Canopy, Curio, DoubleTreeEmbassy SuitesHampton InnHiltonHilton Garden Inn, Hilton Grand Vacations, Home2Suites, Homewood Suites, Tru, and Waldorf Astoria brand hotels.

Remember, you can only earn the sign-up bonus from AMEX cards once, per person, per lifetime.  But you can earn the bonus from each card because they’re considered different card products.  And there are plenty of ways to earn Hilton points!

1.   AMEX Hilton HHonors Surpass

Link:   My Review of the AMEX Hilton HHonors Surpass

You’ll earn 100,000 Hilton points after spending $3,000 on purchases in the first 3 months of opening the AMEX Hilton HHonors Surpass.

And you’ll also get:

  • Free Hilton Gold Elite status (free breakfast at certain hotels, upgrades when available)
  • Free Hilton Diamond Elite status when you spend more than $40,000 in a calendar year (better upgrades)
  • 12 points for every $1 you spend at Hilton hotels
  • 6 points per $1 you spend at US restaurants, supermarkets & gas stations
  • 3 points per $1 you spend on everything else
  • Terms and limitations apply

The annual fee of $75 is NOT waived for the first year.

This isn’t a good card to use overseas, because it adds a ~3% foreign transaction fee.  But it’s an excellent choice for folks who have a lot of paid stays, because it earns the most points at Hilton hotels.

You could use 100,000 Hilton points for a night at a luxury Hilton hotel like the Conrad Hong Kong where Emily and I stayed.

2.   AMEX Hilton HHonors

Link:   My Review of the American Express Hilton HHonors

With the AMEX Hilton HHonors card, you’ll earn 75,000 Hilton points after spending $1,000 on purchases in the first 3 months of opening your account.

This card is a great pick if you don’t pay for stays at Hilton hotels frequently or prefer a card with NO annual fee.

You’ll also get:

  • 7 Hilton points per $1 spent at most Hilton hotels
  • 5 Hilton points per $1 spent at US gas stations, US restaurants, and US supermarkets
  • 3 Hilton points per $1 spent on all other purchases
  • Free Hilton Silver elite status (late check-out, 2 free bottles of water, and 15% points bonus on Hilton points earned)
  • Free Hilton Gold elite status (free breakfast and better upgrades) after spending $20,000 in a calendar year
  • Terms & limitations apply

There’s NO annual fee, which makes it a good card to keep long-term to increase the average age of your accounts and potentially boost your credit score.

Bottom Line

The limited-time highest-ever sign-up bonuses on the AMEX Hilton cards have returned!  But to get these offers, you must apply by November 30, 2016.

You’ll earn 100,000 Hilton points with the Hilton HHonors™ Surpass® Card from American Express or 75,000 Hilton points with the Hilton HHonors™ Card from American Express after meeting minimum spending requirements.

Remember, AMEX only allows folks to earn the sign-up bonus on their cards once, per person, per lifetime.  So if you haven’t yet had these cards, it’s a good time to apply?

We don’t earn a penny from these offers, but Emily and I will always tell you about the best deals.

Let me know which Hilton hotel you’d book with the sign-up bonus!

  1. I received a bonus when I upgraded from the basic Amex Hilton card to the Surpass a little over a year ago. If I was to downgrade from Surpass to the basic, would I then be eligible to receive a sign-up bonus for the Surpass?

  2. Do you automatically get Gold Elite Status once approved? Or do you have to wait until you have met the minimum spending requirement?
